Field survey was conducted in Singrauli coalfields to detect the suitable woody plant species for revegetation of coal mine spoils. Of the eleven woody species reported, the leguminous Acacia catechu and Butea monosperma and non-leguminous Adina cordifolia, Baswellia serrata, Holarrhena antidysenterica, Nyctanthes arboe-tristis and Woodfordia fruticosa are the potential woody species for the revegetation of coal mine spoils in a dry tropical environment.
